“I have 27 years with LAUSD, have served as chapter chair, vice chair, and as a member of UTLA House of Representatives. I am currently a member of UTLA Retired. It has been a long time since UTLA has made member issues their priority. The candidates of United Team for Change will do just that.”
Taimi Crowell, UTLA retired
The United Team For Change is here for you and every member of UTLA to improve our working conditions, pay and protect our rights!
CURRENT LEADERSHIP IS FAILING OUR MEMBERS!
VOTE FOR CHANGE!
You deserve a union that works for you and with you
You got into education to make a difference.
You should make a great living too!
VOTE FOR CHANGE!
Here are some of the reasons why we will earn your vote!
We have a comprehensive plan to raise teacher pay!
Anyone can say raise teacher pay, but we have a comprehensive plan to make it happen. Each and every one of you deserves to be paid a substantial professional salary. We will make that happen, together.
We will do more to stop the abuse and intimidation of teachers!
You deserve to work free of intimidation. We will protect your rights and strengthen your representation during grievance hearings.
Bring back SCRAM. Stop member abuses by administrators.
Reducing teacher workload
Overcrowded classrooms and insufficient numbers of teachers aids and support staff put undue burdens on you.
We will work together in reducing teacher workloads.
We will fight for less testing
Testing should not replace time teaching. Students are not standardized cogs in a machine. They are individuals with very individualized needs, learning styles, and challenges.
We will end excessive workload increases without additional pay
You should not be expected to do more and more work without being paid for it! Your time should be rewarding to you and you should be well compensated for it.
Making professional development relevant to each teacher
Professional development should be relevant to each teacher.
We will return democracy to UTLA to empower all of our members again!
The president changed the constitution to take away the veto power of the Hosue Of Representatives giving her the power of a dictator. This silences your voice!
Vote For Change candidates will make sure every one of us has a voice in our union and nobody is silenced, disrespected, or dismissed. You deserve to be heard.
Restructuring public education for families to better afford to live in L.A.
Students’ families and teachers struggle to be able to afford to live in Los Angeles. We will work to create a modern curriculum that empowers students, teachers, and schools to increase economic stability and security moving forward.
Creating more accountability & transparency for UTLA
When you show up and succeed in getting an important motion passed only to have it disappear into some committee, that is unjust and unacceptable!
We have the expertise and experience to know what UTLA should be doing that they are not doing, and what they are doing that they definitely should not be doing!
We will make UTLA transparent and accountable to you and every rank-and-file member.
Removing political factionalism/exclusion within UTLA so we can win together
For too long UTLA has been run like an insiders club. Past officers have been excluded and frozen out in an apparent effort to preserve power.
We will create an inclusive collegial environment and welcome the input, ideas, and participation of every past elected officer, many of whom have a wealth of experience that can continue to help our members.
